Where The Deer And The Antelope Play

A friend and I were driving back to the cabin one afternoon after a visit to Walden when we saw this regal male Pronghorn Antelope at the side of the road. My friend started snapping pictures of him from the passenger seat as I slowly drove along side him. The arrogance that this animal displayed was almost blinding. He was not afraid of us one iota and moved with the confident step of a world leader. He actually seemed to want us to take his photo but only on his own terms. Moving along at a princely pace he would sometimes stop and pose for us . Look carefully at these two photos and then try telling me that he did not realize just where he was standing in relation to us or just how striking the photos would turn out. He was electrifying.
